Infection Lassa Fever
In 2008, a highly fatal outbreak of HF in Johannesburg was attributed to a previously unknown arenavirus
, dubbed the Lujo virus (i.e.
Members of the virus genera Hantavirus (family Bunyaviridae) and Arenavirus
(family Arenaviridae) are rodent-borne viruses with cosmopolitan distributions, primarily associated with the rodent families Cricetidae (New World) and Muridae (Old World).
Entre los virus que son considerados por el CDC se encuentran los virus de la viruela, de Nipah y de Hanta, asi como los causantes de fiebres hemorragicas como los filovirus de Ebola y de Marburg, y los arenavirus
de Lassa y de Machupo, los causantes de encefalitis como los virus de la encefalitis equina venezolana, de la encefalitis equina oriental y la encefalitis equina occidental (CDC, 2010).
LCMV is the only arenavirus
to exist in both areas; however, it is classified as an Old World virus.
Human infection with an arenavirus
is likely to be very uncommon.
Nucleotide sequencing matched the arenavirus
with the Whitewater Arroyo virus found in woodrats (Neotoma spp.), which normally do not come in contact with humans.
(NASDAQ: HOOK, 'HOOKIPA'), a company developing a new class of immunotherapeutics, targeting infectious diseases and cancers based on its proprietary arenavirus

a company developing a new class of immunotherapeutics targeting infectious diseases and cancers based on its proprietary arenavirus
platform, announced that it has secured an oral presentation of Phase 1 data from its HB-101 cytomegalovirus (CMV) clinical program including an update on the ongoing Phase 2 trial at the upcoming American Transplant Congress (ATC), taking place June 1-5, 2019 in Boston, MA, USA.
Diseases or pathogens considered for inclusion on priority pathogen list and under annual review Arenavirus
hemorrhagic fevers None available.
For example, while Leptospira and Lymphocytic choriomeningitis arenavirus
are transmitted by urban rodents such as Rattus rattus and Mus muscullus, recent evidence suggests that wild rodents such as the New World Sigmodontins are chronic carriers of these roboviruses.
